1: S5P3. Students will investigate the electricity, magnetism, and their relationship. a. Investigate static electricity. | By Yolanda Aalim EDUC 421
2: Fun Facts about Electricity: | -Electricity travels at the speed of light -A bolt of lightning can last less than one second. -Electricity tries to find the easiest path to the ground. -Electricity can be made from wind, water, the sun and even animal poop. -The first power plant - owned by Thomas Edison. -Thomas Edison invented switches, fuses, sockets meters, and more. -Benjamin Franklin proved that lightning is a form of electrical energy.
3: Sources of Electricity | Water Power | Wood and Coal | Wind Power | Solar Power | Oil and Gas | Nuclear Power | Geothermal
4: Fun Facts about Static Electricity: | -A spark of static electricity as little power or energy. -Lighting is a powerful and dangerous example of static electricity. -As dangerous as lighting is, around 70% of people struck by lightning survive. -Temperatures in a lightning bolt can hit 50,000 degrees F. -Static electricity will be worse on a dry non-humid day.
5: Opposite Charges Attract | Like Charges Repel
6: Magnetism Fun Facts: | -Magnets are objects that produce an area of magnetic force called a magnetic field. -Magnets only attract certain types of metals, other materials such as glass, plastic and wood aren't attracted. -Metals such as iron, nickel and cobalt are attracted to magnets. -Most metals however are not attracted to magnets, these include copper, silver, gold, magnesium, platinum, aluminum and more. -Magnets have a magnetic north pole and a magnetic south pole. If the same pole of two magnets are placed near each other they will push away (repel), while if different poles are placed near each other they will pull together (attract). The Earth's magnetic field is responsible for deflecting the solar wind, charged particles that come from the Sun. Magnetic compasses use the Earth's magnetic field to help navigate in north, south, east and west directions.
7: North Pole | South Pole
8: Electromagnetism Fun Facts: | -Electromagnetism is the combined effect of electricity and magnetism. -An electromagnet is a strong magnet that is only magnetic when an electric current passes through it. It is made by wrapping a coil of wire, called a solenoid, around a core of iron. -Electromagnetism can be switched on and off, unlike permanent magnets. -Around every electric or magnetic object is an area, or electromagnetic field, where its force is effective.
